INDOOR WHEELCHAIR LIFTS
When it comes to wheelchair lifts, no one has more experience, greater expertise, or a broader product selection than Area Access. We do both residential installations and commercial jobs, with portable and temporary units available for special events. In 2009, we were responsible for one such temporary installation at the U.S. Presidential Inauguration, when we installed the wheelchair lift used by Vice President Cheney.

VPC-EL SELF-CONTAINED ENCLOSED
As the name suggests, this unit is completely self-contained and requires no pre-existing shaft or hoistway. The enclosure can be ordered with an “open” look, featuring a 42 inch barrier around the top landing, or fully enclosed with regular doors, roof, and ventilation system. The latter configuration is most suitable for outdoor installations. The VPC-EL comes with doors and/or gates built into its walls.
The VPC-SL is designed to be enclosed in a pre-existing hoistway or shaft. The drive tower and lift platform are installed inside this shaft. Each landing is equipped with a gate or door, integral to operation of the unit. At the top landing, the shaft can go up all the way to the ceiling, or may be truncated at as little as 42 inches. This shorter design can be used to create an installation that feels more “open” at the top landing.
